s-10 bed supports rusted
Hi, I'm new here so I wasn't sure where to put this thread. Anyways i've got a '91 s-10 2.8L v6 5speed manual. And my problem is that the panels of the truck bed look great, but the supports underneath are WEAK!. In the back near where the spare tire is, the bed support is completely rusted through and does not go across anymore- hence a small dip in the bed. ( luckly the spare tire has it's own frame mount/ support which is in good shape). Any suggestions on how to fix this? Do they sell reinforcements anywhere? Should I replace the bed? ( really don't want to). ANY suggestions welcomed! What should I do so that I don't pile on a bunch of bricks and have the back of the bed start sagging? I need all the help I can get- I'm new to this truck. Thanks!
